  • 10 Arrested For Charged of Louisiana State University Fraternity Dead

Ten people have been taken into custody for their alleged connection in a hazing incident that resulted in the death of an LSU student, according to the LSU Police Department.

Last month, after 18-year-old freshman Maxwell Gruverdied in a Baton Rouge hospital following an apparent hazing ritual gone bad, some Phi Delta Theta members were on the hot seat. Naquin apparently didn't like Gruver and "forced" him to drink because he was having trouble reciting the Greek alphabet during "Bible Study", a ritual testing their fraternity knowledge, they said.

While most of the pledges at that night's "Bible Study" were only told to drink three or four "pulls" - or three-to-five second swigs - of the alcohol, Gruver was told to drink 10-12 "pulls".

At the time of Gruver's autopsy, his blood alcohol content was.496 percent, which is more than six times the legal limit for driving, The Times noted. The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office ruled his cause of death as "acute ethanol intoxication with aspiration".

The other suspects are Zachary Castillo, 19; Elliott Eaton, 20; Zachary Hall, 21; Hudson Kirkpatrick, 19; Sean Pennison, 21; Nicholas Taulli, 19; and Ryan Isto, 18.

Eight of the young men are current students at Louisiana State University. The other two, Patrick Forde, 20, and Sean Paul Gott, 21, are not enrolled at the school, but have ties to the fraternity.

John McLindon, a lawyer for Naquin, declined to comment on these charges "out of respect for (Gruver's) family". All were cleared of the felony charges against them.

"Let's just wait until the evidence comes in", he said.

According to the Associated Press, police reports suggest that Gruver may have been forced to consume excessive amounts of alcohol the night before his death.

"But my client did not violate any law or code of conduct at LSU", Bourland added. Several fraternity members said they had checked on Gruver "throughout the night", police said.

Police executed court orders at the club house and at Gruver's apartment. The fraternities will not be allowed to hold chapter-affiliated events during the suspension.

Police also obtained a warrant to examine Gruver's phone so they could see who he called or texted before his death.

The news of Gruver's death follows the high-profile death in February of Timothy Piazza, who had participated in a fraternity hazing event at Penn State.
